Illinois law forbids distracted driving. But what exactly is “distracted driving”? While that term could refer to shaving in the mirror while driving, it normally refers to the use of some electronic device. Although distracted driving laws keep getting stricter, for the moment the rules in Chicago are as follows:
Many states follow “negligence per se” rules. Under these rules a violation of a safety statute is considered automatic negligence. In Illinois, however, a violation of a safety statute such as distracted driving is considered evidence of negligence. This means a court can decide that the violation did not add up to negligence under the circumstances of the accident. That rarely happens to our clients.
Winning a truck accident claim can be tricky, especially when you are filing a claim against a stubborn insurance company that will be on the hook for a large sum if your claim succeeds. That doesn’t bother us here at Malman Law – we have been winning truck accident claims on behalf of our Chicago clients for decades now.

I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.
